Pearl translates your home's performance into value at the time of sale or refinance

High-performing home features increase home value – when they’re properly documented. If they’re not, you could lose money on the investments you’ve made in your home.

Unique from other home certifications, Pearl makes sure you and your real estate agent have the tools you need to maximize your return on investment.

Properly marketed Pearl Certified homes can sell for 5% more on average. If your home is worth $250,000, Pearl Certification could mean an extra $12,500 in your pocket.

Now I have a certificate to show how efficient my house is. This is something I’ll definitely bring up with my Realtor when I decide to sell my home.

I understand the value that high-performing, energy efficient homes bring to the market. The missing link is getting relevant information about those homes to agents and appraisers who are not building scientists. Pearl provides that missing link.

As a Pearl Broker, our agents are trained to sell high-performing homes faster and at a higher price point. We have seen firsthand the power of Pearl Certification. We had a house whose appraisal came in low, threatening the viability of the deal. Until we got it Pearl Certified! Not only did the house appraise for more, it went forward to a smooth close.

From certification to sale

Your real estate agent will decide whether a Pearl Certification is right for your home. If you have a solar energy system, they will fill out a form for an easy assessment.

Pearl issues the Certification Report and sends marketing materials to your agent. The Pearl Certification Report documents your home’s performance data – and translates it into home value.

Your agent uses the Pearl Certification Report and special Appraisal Addendum to ensure your home’s high-performing assets are properly valued.

Sell your home! Pearl Certified homes can sell more quickly and for 5% more when marketed properly.
